Landscape Stone at One Blackfriars

Project year: 2017 - 2019
Posted: 25 Mar, 2021

One Blackfriars is a new 52 storey tower situated on the South Bank of the Thames in London, rising up between the Tate Modern and the Royal Festival Hall. We were delighted to be chosen to supply the landscaping stone for this project and worked closely with the contractor Elite Landscapes to meet their deadlines and to ensure stone details matched their requirements.

The stone supply was primarily Chinese silver-grey granite and included paving, kerbs, steps, planters, cladding and coping.

In the first phase alone there were 1200m² of 65mm thick paving in different element sizes.

Kerb supply included multiple varied radius units to ensure design requirements were satisfied.

The steps to the front of the hotel entrance include black basalt insert visibility strips as well as special corduroy tactile paving above and below.

During supply for this project, due to time constraints, we successfully supplied matching European silver-grey stone in quick time so that the project could continue to progress without delay.

The roof area includes a yoga garden and we supplied the kerbs, cladding and coping for this quiet and delightful space.

We supplied the cladding and coping units to form the intricate and eye-catching back planter and water feature area situated in the central plaza. This included complex angled coping sections and special bespoke shaped coping units with more than 200 individually sized pieces. There are also special-shaped granite columns to the entrance areas.

The supply ran for several phases, beginning in 2017 through to completion was in 2019.
